Guestbook comments from the manager

I booked this unit based on the price. It is not as fancy as other units but it had everything we needed. The unit was clean and the local manager was very helpful when we had an issue with the toilet downstairs. She had someone at the unit within an hour.

The location is good and although it is not on the beach, it only takes a few minutes to walk to the gate to get to the beach. We enjoyed being able to walk to Edgewater for games and food without having to get out in the traffic.

Thank you for keeping this price reasonable for families who want a trip to the beach but cannot afford the high rates!

We will be staying here again...hopefully soon!

Great condo with everything you need!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at Pam and Jim's condo. It was clean and had everything you could possibly need. It even had several beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a wagon for toting things back and forth to the beach. There are 11 pools in the complex so none of them were ever crowded. We loved the space and how easy it was to walk to the beach. Also lots of restaurants and entertainment nearby. Would definitely stay here again!

Overall great but could be better

  • 3 of 5

We had a great week. However, the lamp in the livingroom did not work. The oven took f o r e v e r to warm up. The couches are very worn and not comfortable. The ceiling fan in the master very wobbly and noisy. The mattress not too comfy and bed so noisy that when my husband turned over during the night it woke me up.

We were unaware that we needed to supply our own trash bags after the 1 provided. No handsoap at the sinks. I'm assuming we were supposed to supply that too but that doesn't seem right. Luckily I brought a couple rolls toilet paper and a roll of paper towels bc the supply that was left for 1 week of use for 5 people was not enough! There was no kind of brush or anything to scrub the dishes with. Luckily I brought my own palmolive bc again...No dish soap.

No plastic cups for kiddos. Glass is not safe and it added stress at breakfast and dinner.

There were only enough towels for 4 people and Only 2 bath rags!!! The email I got said if you had a large party to bring extra towels. I do not feel like our party was large but I guess we were. Luckily we brought plenty of beach towels to use 1 for bath time. However again 2 bath rags was nowhere near enough.

I'm not sure the floors were mopped bc day 1 of us getting there walking around without shoes on and our feet were black!

We had no parking passes in the condo as stated in the email. Spoke to the owner and said she'd be by the next day and leave them.... nope! Luckily the guard shack gave us 1 on day 3.

Again, overall was a great stay. This is our 2nd stay in this community. Love the features and access to beach and pools. Loved that the condo had a beach wagon which was such a great surprise and super handy along with beach chairs!!

Hidden gem....

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our time at your place. Your condo was perfect size. The walk to the beach wasn't bad. My only complaint is I don't feel like your cleaning crew is the best. I cleaned bathrooms and wiped out the fridge and kitchen before we put stuff away. The cabinets are white and showed lots of dirty spots etc. I also wish i had known about the golf cart rental place that rents carts by the week. They were sold out when we were their and discovered them. A cart would have been convenient when taking everything over to the beach. I do plan to make reservations for next summer. The owners were extremely helpful and always pleasant when I had any questions. I feel like I have found our families perfect vacation spot in PCB. I brag to everyone about the resort and the price. Can't wait to get back.
